A mystical adventure about a pulls-no-punches princess and the power of her magical pen.
A dark secret lurks in Keira’s family. She comes from a long line of Word Weavers, who bring their stories to life when they use a magical pen. But for generations Word Weavers have been hunted for their power. That’s why Keira is forbidden to write. When Keira discovers her grandma’s Word Weaver pen, and writes a story for the Girls’ World fairy-tale contest, she starts to wonder if anyone ever truly lives happily ever after. Inspired by the life and times of Gabrielle d’Estrées, a real French princess who lived during the 1500s, The Princess and the Page follows the mystical journey of a modern-day “royal” who goes from having a pen in her hand to wishing for the world at her fingertips.
“A smart, peppery, action-packed plot teams up with playful, astute
characters.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“The pace is effective for building a deep sense of mystery. Slowing down
works for the overall mystery… particularly since, in Keira’s first-person
narrative, readers will discover clues right along with her.” (Booklist)
